Henry Walker was once a world-class magician performing to sold-out audiences. Now he has been reduced to joining Jeremiah Musgrove's Chinese Circus as the shambling Negro Magician.   One night in 1954, Henry disappears in the company of three rowdy white teens and is never seen again.   Based on Daniel Wallace’s

Mr. Sebastian and the Negro Magician

Henry Walker and the Wheel of Death

pieces together Henry's incredible vagabond life – from a deal with the mysterious Mr. Sebastian, to the loss of his sister Hannah – and creates a tale of love, loss, identity, and the limitation of magic.   The LA Times called Wallace’s novel

“Poignant and provocative”.

 

Henry Walker and the Wheel of Death

is adapted for the stage and directed by Shane Morgan with kind permission from Daniel Wallace.   Daniel Wallace is author of

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
